The liquidity dip through the end of last week leveraged volatility more than settling it. Commodities were the story of the market's opening move this week, but the focus seems to be moving back to more elemental factors. We were reminded of an environment of excessive risk exposure, heightened leverage, low returns and consistent fundamental sparks by the Treasury's third annual financial market assessment. As we maintain a healthy appreciation of how quickly speculative positioning can crumble, we should make immediate preparations for an upcoming round of key event risk. The UK Autumn Statement, US ADP payrolls, Eurozone PMIs and Bank of Canada rate decision are just a few of the many events on deck to stir rate speculation. We discuss imminent and big picture risks (or opportunities depending on your perspective) in today's Trading Video.
